Your table scapes are simply stunning! I love the use of color and texture, the extra touches of much loved items, statues, cherubs, shells and favorite dishes. It almost seems a shame to dirty the dishes...almost but not quite!

Happy New Year my blogging friend. So glad to have made your acquaintance, looking forward to many great posts in 2010 and being inspired by you as I always am!

Sarah said...

It was a treat to go back and visit each of these beautiful tables that you created through the year. Difficult to select a favorite, but like you, the silver elegance really does stand out for me. I love the red transfer ware plates and the silver tureen. Stunning table! Thanks for sharing these beautiful mosaics with the links to the posts. Great idea. I went back down memory lane to revisit each one!
Happy New Year to You! ~ Sarah

Lynette said...

What a great idea Chari and what beautiful tablescapes! I love them all - they are all stunning!

I stopped in at Cracker Barrell tonight for some "to-go" supper (Meghan is coaching tonight) and . . . are you sitting down? they already have their Easter out - Easter!! I just about fell over. I've seen Valentine's in Wal-Mart, but Easter! They had some really cute stuff though - really cute! I can't remember if you have a CB around you or not, but you might want to hop over there AND all their Christmas is around 70% off!

Happy New Year!

OH,MY DEAR CHARI,
What beautiful tables, what a fabulous idea and what creative talents you have! I loved every single solitary one of them!!! I don't know a fave but maybe a couple! You know that water one just had me drooling for days, I still want those dishes and have been rationalizing for months why I should get some. heehe. Then that Brume de Rose one just had it for me! The soft colors and the textures, oh my! You created all such glorious tables and they are more like works of art! Thanks my friend, we are going out for dinner with my Mom and My uncle and a few others. It should be fairly tame for New Years but that is usually what we do. Hugs and all and Happy 2010! Here's to another great year of blogging friendship! Cindy

Jeanette said...

I look forward to your tablescapes every week--you're one of my favorites--and seeing so many of these together in the retrospective is STUNNING, TRULY STUNNING. And you are such a sweetheart, too...your heart comes BEAMING through my computer screen.
Love/hugs to you, Lana

Sue said...

Chari, They were all beautiful and full of such pretty accents. I missed a few of your earlier ones in the year. Love the Easter table and the autumn one, too. Oh heck- who can choose?! I am so happy to have met you this year. You have such talents and the end results of them always amaze me. Here is wishing you all good things for the upcoming new year!
hugs, Sue

Theresa said...

Simply amazing! And just wanted to say that I have a bloghug (aka award) for you at my place... even if you are an award free blog, I still wanted to let you know that I couldnt help but to "pass" this on to you.

and tah-dah...this post is the perfect example of what I wrote about you.

Happy New Year or in Hawaiian:
Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! (sounds like "How..oh-lee...Mah-kah...hee-kee...Ho!" ...your Hawaiian pronunciation lesson for the day :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

Blessings & Aloha!

You are very talented, I look forward to another year of lovely posts on your blog!

Happy New Year!

Mimi said...

Chari, thank you for sharing 12 months of tables, couldn't choose a favorite, though...each one is beautiful. Happy New Year!

Maggie B said...

Happy New Year Chari,
What a stunning post!!
I was hard put to decide which was my favourite as each one appeared I said to myself "that's my favourite" but they just kept on coming each one just as gorfeous as the one before.
You are truly the Queen of Tablescapes and I look forward to seeing the TT's that you create in 2010.
Maggie

Lize said...

They were all brilliant!

You use your objects very creatively and it makes for very attractive tablescapes!

Pat said...

Can I come and live with you? :-) Everything is absolutely stunning! I don't know if I could pick a favorite although I do love red.

Happy New Year! I hope it's filled with laughter, love, good health and abundance.
xoxo

Hi Chari! It's been TOO long since I've visited, but I picked the right day to do so. This post is absolutely so much fun to see all the 2009 tablescapes you created this year. They're all lovely, but I think the Tea for Two captured my eye most, of course! :) I pray you had a lovely Christmas with your family...and that your New Year in 2010 will bring you much joy and peace. Blessings Abundantly! ~CC Catherine from "Catherine de th`e Cups"

Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern said...

All of your tablescapes are absolutely stunning! I think my favorite is the Easter table. That little bunny in the apothecary jar is too cute! I'm going to add your blog to my blog roll, so I can visit again. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

The Muse said...

Just like opening presents..long wished for!
Beautiful post!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Happy New Year Chari!
Thanks for the info about the water dishes, I will check that out! We had a nice evening out last night just dinner and a few drinks but it was fun! Hope your day is going good, we are sooooo cold here, I need to go somewhere warm! I spent most of today putting away Christmas decor and taking down the tree, kind of sad but now I will start dreaming of Spring! Love Ya, Cindy

podso said...

How lovely. I'm sure you had happy memories as you made all these collages! Happy New Year, my blogging friend!
